L'EROICA VINTAGE BIKE RALLY

We often have the pleasure of building vintage racing bikes for bike enthusiasts who are participating in
L' eroica
, the world's largest vintage bike rally.
Riders come from all parts of the world to participate in this classic bike race and Guten Biken has been there to provide the right vintage bikes for this special race. 

Held in October every year the L’ eroica is oldest vintage rally bike race in the world. 
First started in 1997 by Giancarlo Brocci initially to save the “strade bianche” or white roads in Tuscany. He also wished to re-establish the ambience and efforts of a by gone cycling era. 
So he conceived L’ eroica as a race with four different courses beginning and ending at Gaiole in Chianti. 
With winding dirt tracks through the picturesque valleys this race is definitely one of the most scenic and enduring races ever.

There are four courses- the long course, the medium course, the short course and the cyclotouristic course.

Here are some photos of a group of guys and girls from USA who recently took part in L'Eroica.
